What is a season of the Real Housewives of Potomac without a Michael Darby scandal? Ashley Darby’s mess of a husband has been causing issues since we first saw this man squeeze a butt during Season 1. Truthfully, I don’t even know how Bravo is cool with still having him on the show, considering the allegations of it all. And while Ashley is trying to convince us that Michael has changed, it’s going to take a lot more from him to make anyone believe it.
Let’s not forget that Michael (allegedly) CHEATED ON HIS PREGNANT WIFE last season and then tried to blame it on her. Trash. The couple just welcomed their second child on this week’s episode, and Michael appears to be going through yet another midlife crisis with his interest in becoming a movie producer despite literally JUST having a baby. Hunny, you’re no Randall Emmett. I don’t believe anyone will be dying to watch movies produced by Mickey Darby.
Like I said, every RHOP season has some Micheal drama. And recently, a photo of Michael and a blonde woman cozying up at a bar raised everyone’s suspicions that he’s at his bad-boy ways again. This man needs to just STAY HOME. Ashley appeared on Watch What Happens Live this week and for some godforsaken reason, Mickey was the bartender. Therefore, Andy Cohen couldn’t not ask Michael to explain the photo and clear the air.
“Everyone just assumed the worst,” Andy said of the photo, with Ashley chiming in saying “naturally.” Girl, do you even REMEMBER this man’s track record? You should be happy the fans are keeping him on his toes.
Michael went on to explain that since COVID-19 is “over” (don’t even get me started on that), he and Ashley have been going out. And sometimes there together and others they ride solo. “So I went out and had a good time and, of course, there’s fans all over the place,” Michael said. “I’m always going to have pictures taken of me in places. I really don’t care anymore. I have a good time and I love this woman dearly and we’re together forever.”
For some reason, he received applause for defending that he actually loves his wife and mother of his two children. The bar is ON THE FLOOR for Mickey. This is exactly why we need Nicki Minaj to host the reunion. I’d pay to see her go after Mr. Darby.
Andy then asked Ashley if she trusts Michael going out alone, because why would you? She says yes. “We are doing things different this time post-partum and we’re having more fun,” Ashley said. “So I think I’m keeping him happy at home.” STOP. I don’t want to hear about your holes. Or even remotely think of Michael and Ashley having sex. And just because you don’t feel sexy as hell postpartum, that doesn’t give him the right to be a sleazeball. Ashley, I beg of you, STOP MAKING EXCUSES for this man. He’s old enough to know what he’s doing. Take a cue from Wendy Osefo and keep him on a tight leash.
